In the spirit of the final challenge, Krista Simmons "pens" her own four letters.

Dear Kerry,

I am so immensely sorry that we couldn't deem both of you winners of Top Chef Masters. Your cooking has such finesse and soul, and that's reflective of your character. I truly respect your work, and admire the fact that you tried to bring back Alex Reznick's famous pea puree in the form of a flan. Honestly though, I really am looking forward to dining at your restaurant in New York. 

All the best to you and your family,


Thank You Note

To all of the Masters,

I want to sincerely thank you for putting your careers, families, and most importantly your souls on the line to come out and cook not just for me, but for charity. I learned a lot about myself throughout this process -- like why eating poolside with half-naked Playboy bunnies is bad for your self-esteem, or why you shouldn't refer to Sriracha as “cock sauce” when taping for a major network -- and I hope you did too. Keep on cookin'!
